Rare takes a look at yet another cancelled Conker title



Rare gives us another look at a canned Conker game, this time it’s Twelve Tales: Conker 64.

Another video has been released documenting the development and cancellation of an old Rare title.

This time it’s Twelve Tales: Conker 64, the previously planned sequel to Conker’s Pocket Tales, released on the Gameboy Colour in 1999.

The title was originally shown at E3 1997 for the Nintendo 64, but sadly never made it to release.

Conker was toted as the main protagonist once again, however Berri was also playable.

Berri resembled a female version of Conker this time though, instead of the goofily sexualised bunny seen in Conker’s Bad Fur Day.

Conker would wear a different hat for each level, giving him a unique appearance and skill set for every new environment.

The game was to feature cooperative play and a four player split-screen deathmatch mode of sorts.

Rare said Conker 64 development was ceased as the game couldn’t compete with emerging 3D platformers on the market.

Some of the content from the game was shaken up and repurposed for Conker’s Bad Fur Day which released in 2001.

You can tell from watching the footage that Conker used to be a much more innocent character.

No sign of swearing, innuendo or weird, opera singing poop monsters either.

Conker and Banjo Kazooie were both featured as playable characters in 1997’s Diddy Kong Racing, long before the release of their own adventures.

Last week, Rare revealed Conker: Gettin' Medieval, an online third-person shooter previously in development for the original Xbox.
